A second cohort of year 14 students at Milestone Academy have now begun their supported internships.

What are supported internships?

Supported internships are a type of study programme which provide additional support for young people who have an Educational Health and Care Plan in place who wish to move into employment. The internship will include a number of days within a workplace as well as continued study of core skills in school.

What support is available?

Supported by job coaches and working with Kent Supported Employment, interns have the opportunity of at least six months work experience.


Interns have to comply with real job conditions with respect to timekeeping and dress code and their work placements have to meet a real business need for the employer whom it is hoped will be able to offer a job at the end of the internships.

Please contact Janet Tidmas, Assistant Principal of Milestone Academy if you wish to know more about supported internships.
